From the reviews:
"This book gives a comprehensive overview of more than a decade of development of an algebraic theory of processes with time. ... Throughout the text small examples and exercises illustrate the theory. ... This book is well-suited as background material or even a starting point for researchers in this field. Due to its excellent readability and its abundance of exercises the book is even suited to be used in an advanced course." (J. F. Groote, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1021, 2003)
